Philippine Government Still Optimistic About More Job Opportunities for Pinoy Nurses

The Philippine Information Agency (PIA) revealed that Pinoy nurses will still be very much in demand in the near future in developed countries.

This comes after the government helped the hiring of Filipino nurses in the Middles East which remains consistently high while Australia needs 200T Filipino nurses. Other countries that are opening up for Filipino nurses are Japan, Spain and Canada while deployment of Filipino nurses for the United Kingdom has dwindled.

The United States government, on the other hand, is fast tracking the nursing education for training their local nurses which might affect the number of deployment of Filipino nurses wanting to migrate there.  This is expected to be counteracted by two house bills pending in US Congress that will open the hiring of foreign nurses to address the shortage of healthcare professionals in the US.

US Labor Department estimates that they will need 500,000 nurses between 2016 until 2025 as there will be millions of elderly people within this period and training their local nurses will not be enough to attend to the needs of the growing aging population.

PIA has acknowledged news report that there are 400T Filipino nurses left without employment as deployment for nurses abroad has slowed.

This is why it is extremely important for the Philippines to uplift the quality of the nurses today especially in the communication skills as well as hands-on experience as these will be the edge of the Filipino nurses when they work overseas.

Review and Control of Nursing Schools in the Philippines by CHED is Being Pushed

September 25, 2008 · Filed Under In the news · Comment 

Several concerned groups have been asking CHED to look closely into the review and control of nursing schools operating in the Philippines particularly those schools without proper training facilities and tie ups with local hospitals to train their graduates.  This came after the oversupply issue on Filipino nurses raised concerns for more production.

CHED was quick to react that the commission cannot just close down a school just because it does not have connections with local hopsitals needed to train the future nurses.  However, CHED realizes that indeed a lot of nursing schools have been performing below expectations and metrics set by the commission.  CHED promised to act on these schools immediately.

In the meantime, thousands of board passers who studied from those ill-connected schools have no experience at all in the hospital environment making them inadmissible to foreign job opportunities.  And for those lucky nurses who are able to get employment appears to have lack of experience in specialized fields like ICU, medical surgery, nicu, emergency, dialysis and cardiac care that are the most sought-after skills needed by foreign hospitals.

This problem will continue to grow if CHED will not act on it quickly.
